What will be the title of the display?

"21st Century Racism Or Lack Thereof: How To Make An Issue Of Something Not There"?

Henry Louis Gates Jr. donates the handcuffs used during his arrest to the Smithsonian Institution's Black History Museum.

Like ... why? What are the cuffs supposed to represent, exactly? If anything, they personify how racism has diminished considerably, and how the "R" word is being utilized for just about anything imaginable.

I guess Obama's Beer Summit failed to ameliorate Gates' anger.

The AP story on Gates from your link has been removed. Hmm.
